A hard choice with several lovely pubs on the Isle of Wight at the fore of my month's travels. I had a day wandering around Bournemouth which isn't that great for pubs but the excellent Goat & Tricycle stood out a mile with it's superb range of ales. I think I will opt for the Prince of Wales in Freshwater IOW, a non-touristy backstreet pub that has been in the Good Beer Guide for 30 odd years under the same extremely welcoming ownership. Nothing pretentious, just a good homely and friendly pub with some great beers.
